Actor from London’s Globe Theatre visits David Lubin Elementary

e-Connections Post David Lubin

Actor Jack Murray from London’s Globe Theatre — established by playwright William Shakespeare — visited David Lubin Elementary School in October to share the magic of the theatrical arts with fourth grade classes.

Introducing the characters and themes of “Macbeth,” Murray encouraged students to use movement and voice to bring Shakespeare’s words to life. For example, he asked students to consider the description of the witches, who are “not like inhabitants of this earth.” The students were then asked to compose and fashion their bodies to match the description.

Lubin is one of several schools in SCUSD which maintain relationships with the Globe Theatre through UC Davis.
